If a car starts then just stalls then starts up again with no problem?

There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.

Truck starts and runs but dies if you dont keep accelerating?

It is probably the alternator. That is what keeps the battery running to the rest of the vehicle. It is probably the fuel to air mixture or a vacum leak. If you hear a hiss when it is running then its vacum if it just slowly stalls when you don't give it throtle then it is fuel.
